“nice meal, something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went here for lunch with kids and friends. Interesting place. Sat at a table that was a bit small for six of us. The place was too dark for the middle of the day and it was very stuffy. However I have given it a 4 rating as the food was very nice and the service was good on the day we went there.

“Food poor - profit over quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Very disappointed as this used to be one of my favourite restaurants. We ate at 5pm and the restaurant was quiet. The meat dishes for the main course were clearly reheated from the day before, as the chicken was hot on the outside, but cold in the centre. Both my partner and i had upset stomachs later, as a result. The cola was from a machine and barely drinkable, as it was so weak. This is such a shame as I have been eating here for years and the service and environment are great. I shall not be returning.

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The restaurant itself seems very authentic, with the low seating, velvet curtains, fabric draped from the walls. The waiters were friendly and attentive. We were impressed that our waiter spent a long time giving us a lesson on how to use a shisha properly. We didn't order a main course, we ordered lots of mezze instead, which all tasted very good. It is on the pricey side, but worth it, as it is an experience. We will def be coming back here when we visit London again.

“Great atmosphere but quite expensive for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Came here with a group to celebrate a birthday. Atmosphere was lovely and well decorated, music good but restauant was quite cramped and hot downstairs. Service was very good with friendly waiters. Found the food itself a little disappointing and expensive. As we were a big group we went for the set menu which was quite bland in flavour and uninspiring.
